The Q1 ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Report is based on actual cybercrime attacks from October 2014 to March 2015 that were detected by the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network during real-time analysis and interdiction of fraudulent online payments, logins and new account registrations. Through its analysis of the top customer transactions across industries, The Network provides unique insight into legitimate end customers’ “digital identities,” even as they move between applications, devices and networks.
Key highlights include:
- Fraudsters are using new techniques and methods to automate cybercrime attacks that use customer data made available from breaches
- More than 11.4 million “spoofing” or impersonation fraud attempts were identified by ThreatMetrix during the period covered by this report
- Trust is critical for conversion and customer loyalty. With record online and mobile commerce transactions, consumers overwhelmingly return to their favorite sites.
